From the Inside Flap:

Detroit’s favorite P.I., Amos Walker, barrels through this collection of five short stories by Shamus Award winner, Loren D. Estleman. General Murders upholds Estleman’s reputation as a master of the short story. Both card-carrying fans of Amos Walker and those who are new to the series will devour these stories as they, with Walker, expose crime in some of the most corrupt alleys and steamy streets of Detroit. Included in this audiobook are these vintage Walker and Estleman pieces: “Greektown,” “Robber’s Roost,” “Fast Burn,” “Dead Soldier,” and “Eight-Mile and Dequindre.” The stories rejoice the hard-edge, wise-cracking, and scandal that typify the genre of private eye fiction.The Oscar-nominated star of Jackie Brown, Robert Forster narrates all five stories in this collection. His history of playing detective-types in such films as Original Gangstas brings a gritty-edged sound to Estleman’s work.

From AudioFile:

Robert Forster's low, gravelly voice is the perfect accompaniment for Estleman's five hard-boiled detective stories. PI Amos Walker pursues corruption and crime in Detroit. Forster is particularly good in his portrayal of the wise-cracking, streetwise detective. He also moves easily from one character to another and quickly engages listeners in his smooth performance. Forster's flat, gritty style perfectly suits the plots of these quick-paced, ruthless, and utterly entrancing stories. Forster's voice reflects the building suspense in some stories and the simple logic used to solve crimes in others. This well-performed presentation will please Estleman fans as well as those who simply enjoy murder mysteries. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
